To a spirit undaunted
To a character strong and vigorous
To an individual who is individualistic
To a lady whose loyalty to duty is exemplary
To a Christian whose testimony has been consistent
To our friend who has inspired us
To you, Miss Batson, v/e the members of the class of 52 proudly dedicate
This annual . . .
Through the moments of uncertainty
Through the days of dire need
Through the months of prayer and waiting
Through the years of struggle and near defeat
Through the times both happy and drear
To this day of progress and accomplishment
God has given our beloved President, Dr. Judson A. Rudd, devotion,
Patience, faith, and vision to guide Bryan University to its present place of
HERBERT W. HILL
One bright day, when all +he world seemed such a lovely place — He knocked
at our door and took them away.
We, the students of Bryan University, pay high tribute to the memory of the late
Herbert W. Hill, beloved staff member, supervisor, and friend to all. If one word
could sum up what was good and fine and challenging in so good a man, it would
be FAITHFULNESS — faithfulness in friendship, in his home, in his church, faithfulness
to all his standards of conduct and honor, and a magnificent failhfuiness to the work
and to the university he loved and to which he gave his utmost in service.
Time shall not wear down nor eat away the eternal memory of cherished friend-
ship. Humble, helpful, and friendly to all — a life dedicated to full time service on
the mission field. Harold's passing just a week before his graduation was a shocking,
sobering blow to the University, and perhaps, God's means of calling others.
Whether it be In devotions, music, sports,
work, organizations, or just plain study-
ing, the motive for our preparation at
Bryan is the same as the aim for our lives
— that of glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ,
in whom, to whom, and through whom
are all things.
Left to right: Leonard A. Meznar. Ruth Sutton. Charles R. Taber. S. June Bell, and Roy J. Clark.
"Who's Who Among Studenfs in
Annerican Universities and Colleges" re-
quires that its members have scholarship,
character, leadership, and potentiality
for future usefulness in business and so-
ciety. Students who are chosen for this
honor at Bryan must also possess a con-
sistent Christian testimony.
IN AMERICAN COLLEGES
Thanksgiving Day began with
a simple Chapel service in the
morning . . .
then we enjoyed -the thrills of the annual Nodh-
South touch football game in the afternoon . . .
spiced with spirited marches by
the band, the greased pig
chase, and the crowning of the
football queens at half-time . . .
and was climaxed by the splen-
did repast at the banquet in
LIFE . . .
Work and Bryan are almost synon-
ymous for sometime during the year,
almost everyone from the President
down to the lowliest freshman can be
seen doing some kind of manual labor
in or around the University.
Formals and corsages were part of
the proper apparel at the Christmas
and Bryan Birthday Banquets which
provide one of the colorful aspects of
the year's social life.
fixing . . .
The battle between the Scarlets and
Golds was restricted to forensic events
this year. Several evenings of spirited ri-
valry are assured as the best talent from
each side participates in dramatic and
poetry readings, spelling, impromptus.
extempores, book reviews, and orations,
hlumorous programs, a debate on a cur-
rent problem, and after-dinner speeches
complete this phase of the year's intra-

Softball is one of the phases of the intramural sports program which fur-
nishes exercise, entertainment, and release from busy classroom life.
Bryan lassies are not only handy with needle and thread but can also
take a mean cut at the ball and send a screaming line drive over the
heads of the opposing outfielders.
The battle of the backboards provided sports headlines during the winter
quarter. This year It was the more youthful freshman and sophomore
teams which turned in the most victories.
In addition to intrannurai basketball games Bryan girls also faced formid-
able opposition from the industrial teams of the surrounding area.
Although the competition was rugged and hard-fought, most of the
touch football players managed to survive the season without serious
injury. The Junior Beavers possessed enough veteran players to garner an
